"Downtown" by Petula Clark and Seinfeld's Jerry & George - Music Association

When George and Jerry are in the diner, and they're doing "Downtown," but instead of singing it, they're talking it. Great scene. Now everytime I hear the song on the radio, I think of that scene.

What are some other associations you have with songs and movies/tv shows?

Anyone remember on Newsradio where the people in the office were doing the lyrics to Shaft as a conversation (Q: Who's the cat who...? A: Shaft!)
Mr James walks in and asks what everyone's talking about. "We're talkin' bout Shaft." "I can dig it."

Sigh. I miss NewsRadio. Aside from the Simpsons, probably the only TV shows whose DVDs I would actually buy.

But, keeping with the theme of the thread...

I remember the NewsRadio show when it was revealed that Dave had a secret affinity for America's "Horse With No Name." Why? I don't remember, I just remember that that turn of events make me laugh hysterically.

Of course, since I don't listen to any radio station that would remotely consider playing "Horse With No Name," I never get to have that music association.

I think everybody in this forum has a singular association with "Don't Fear the Reaper."

But have you ever actually heard "A Horse With No Name" by America?

Do you ever find yourself surprised by people who claim to have never heard certain songs that you simply assume the whole damn world has heard of?

I swear my wife must have never seen an FM radio as a child. She's only four years younger than me, but almost every day she'll make me feel ancient because I recognize some old Steely Dan, America, or Kansas song or something. You know that new Janet Jackson song that riffs "Ventura Highway"? She looked at me like I was crazy when I asked her if she didn't recognize the sample.

Yeah I knew the song beforehand -- the genial blandness of the song makes Dave's secret obsession with it that much more amusing to me.

Unfortunately, I'm beginning to find myself slipping into the opposite category -- there are a number of songs that the whole damn world has heard of that I haven't...
